“If I don't know enough about the LEGAL PRECEDENT that occurred with Shays's Rebellion, then I'd like to know better.”

Well it might be the other side of the coin that needs to be examined. Why did Shay’s have to run? Who was extracting taxes from him? Was it lawful? I think I remember you explaining that he went to the revolutionary war and then came home and had no money to pay taxes demanded and lost his land? Is that right? If so, what entity was causing him grief? State or Consolidated government?
“Liars lie.
Is Patrick Henry lying?”

No, I suppose Patrick Henry had lived long enough and stayed politically active long enough to see a Con Con or a Shell Game in action:
“But I am fearful I have lived long enough to become an old-fashioned fellow. Perhaps an invincible attachment to the dearest rights of man may, in these refined, enlightened days, be deemed old-fashioned; if so, I am contented to be so. I say, the time has been when every pulse of my heart beat for American liberty, and which, I believe, had a counterpart in the breast of every true American; but suspicions have gone forth�suspicions of my integrity�publicly reported that my professions are not real. Twenty-three years ago was I supposed a traitor to my country? I was then said to be the bane of sedition, because I supported the rights of my country.”
“The Constitution denied the right of the states to issue currency. The federal government alone had this right,”

= Money Monopoly. I keep forgetting about Morris and the bank. Josf, it is so hard for me to keep the whole picture in view. Thank you for your continual reminders.
“Jesus was a capitalist because he owned the most valuable capital in the world, the Word of God, and how much did he charge for that most valuable capital that was so scarce at that time?”

It was freely given and it cost Him His Life, which He also freely gave.
“Cui bono”

The question that must be asked when looking at facts and players? May I direct you back to my reply above and ask: “Cui bono?”

I will try, try, try to remember: Cui bono when I look at things. But also, one has to remember sometimes those beneficiaries are determined by the benefactor. Not all benefactors are evil.
“so the Liars had to dangle the false promise of a Federation in front of the masses of dupes, at that time.
This is a very familiar story.”

Yes, I believe we are seeing it before our eyes today…you perhaps for more than 20 years, me maybe the last 5…though I knew Waco and Ruby Ridge were blips, I did not stop to examine those rocks. And perhaps now, we saw a Champion of Liberty grace the scene and that Voice of Liberty has been replaced with a voice within the Libertarian party that tangles Liberty.

What I am struggling with today is the difference between States Rights and Natural Rights. Does the state have the right to squelch a Natural Right? What if the Book of Romans is true?

Have your read this: ? I will add it to my library doc.
